Seeds of Despair

Why does the earth war with her children

Leaving them lying in anguish

Where is the hand of their creator

Where is the hollow that holds them there

A bitter wind slaps the face of an unruly child

As the earth swallows sons and daughters

Sealing them within an early tomb

The dead kill the living through their decay

As with a hand of hope they reach to save

Tremors come to seize the captives

As they swim through the bloody rubble

Of what many once called their home

The house of god has fallen to the ground

As a man on a bicycle rides it around

Gazing at a sea of cardboard houses

That fell like dominoes as the earth

Vomited the seeds of despair
